So Iceland Airwaves is really almost over. Thank the lord. This is SO TIRING. But it ain’t over yet, and we are busy getting ourselves all hyped up for tonight’s concert madness. One last night, then it’s off to rehab. Promise.
So you all know about what the official programme has in store for you at NASA and Sódóma. Nasa brings a party for those in the party mood, with the lovely Orphic Oxtra getting things started up. Samúel Jón Samúelsson Big Band, the mighty Dan Deacon and FM Belfast then finish things off to an epic climax.
Sódóma has a pretty interesting programme too. There’s even a surprise still-TBA act that you can amuse yourself by trying to guess who it is when they come on stage. Maybe they’ll be wearing masks or something. But there’s also Vestmannaeyjar’s one and only Foreign Monkeys, a band called Massy Ferguson and the epic rocksters of XIII.
But there are also various parties going on around town for those of y’all that don’t have any wristbands (or can’t handle the queue at NASA). Director Árni Sveinsson and the band Hjaltalín are throwing a party at Venue, where they’ll offer up free booze and some nice, free music. It features performances from Borko, Hjaltalín, Reykjavík! and Búdrýgindi (now there’s a band we haven’t heard in a while). Furthermore, Árni and Reykjavík! will be premiering their new video for a song called ‘INTERNET’. Starts at eight thirty or so.
Then Lazyblood are throwing a party at Boston, starting at nine or so. Featuring performances from Lazyblood, Sudden Weather Change, Reykjavík! and The Vandelles. It will be interesting.
See you around!
